FABULOUS FALL


This page was designed for Ms. Powell's super duper kindergarten class

 Fall is the time of year between summer and winter.  Fall is when the weather starts to get cooler and the leaves on the trees turn from green to many different shades of red, yellow and orange.
Another name for fall is autumn.
    A fun and exciting night in fall is Halloween. We enjoy this holiday by making jack-o lanterns and decorating with scary witches and friendly ghosts, dressing up in costumes and having fun with our friends and family. 

  A very important day in fall is Thanksgiving. This is a day we remember the Native Americans and the Pilgrams. This is a time to give thanks for what we have and share with others who may not have very much.  On Thanksgiving many people eat turkey and dressing or stuffing and pumpkin pie.
